With Bride & Prejudice, director Gurinder Chadha, marries Jane Austen's refined social comedy to a most unexpected partner: the all-singing, all-dancing spectacles of Bollywood.

The result is a new twist on Austen's timeless tale of finding love - re-told as it has never been before, with the cheeky humour, sweeping dance numbers and unabashed romance of Bombay's box-office hits.

As in Austen's "Pride & Prejudice", Bride & Prejudice brings together two people with polar opposite views, but this time they are also from opposite ends of the earth, as East literally meets West in a riot of colour, comedy and emotion.

Chadha has moved the classic story of a young woman seeking to break away from social conventions in the name of love from 18th century England to 21st century Amristar, India.

It is here that the meddlesome Mrs. Bakshi sets out to find suitable marriage matches for her four beautiful daughters - only to have her plans foiled when the ravishing but headstrong Lalita announces that she will only marry for love. 

When Lalita meets the wealthy America hotel tycoon, Will Darcy, at last sparks fly. But is it love or spite that's creating so much tension between them?

Lalita is incensed by Darcy's seeming lack of respect for India; while Darcy is flummoxed by Lalita's impression of him as a spoiled American.

And yet... they can't stop thinking of one another.

Alternately enchanted and suspicious, Lalita and Darcy soon fall prey to a series of comedic misunderstandings as Lalita is pursued by two other suitors: the mysterious English backpacker, Wickham, and the hilariously unsuitable California transplant, Kholi.

Tagline: Bollywood meets Hollywood... And it's a perfect match
